The Admissions Process:

First Steps

We ask that parents visit the school to observe in a classroom and to talk with our Admissions Director and teachers before bringing their child.

Why We Ask You to Observe

Observing in one of our classrooms provides you with the opportunity to witness first hand what makes a Montessori classroom unique:

  • To observe the children working independently and with responsibility
  • To observe the Director/Directress moving from child to child giving individualized lessons
  • To observe the classroom as a community
  • To observe a multi-age group setting
  • To observe one child teaching another
Submitting an Application

The next step is to submit an application for admission. Forms can be completed on paper or online through our website. You will then be invited to return to the school so that your child may visit with a trained Montessori teacher and explore the classroom materials.

Admissions Decisions

Admissions decisions are made on a rolling basis after a family has visited and submitted their child’s application.  Families are encouraged to apply as early as possible.  Qualified children may be accepted mid-year if a family desires early enrollment.

Qualified students of all ages are welcomed to apply and will be eligible for admissions. Priority is given to students transferring from other Montessori schools and to children between 15 months – 3 years because experience has shown that children already familiar with Montessori classrooms or just beginning their schooling adapt most readily to the classic Montessori curriculum at LMS.

Statement of Non-Discrimination

The Litchfield Montessori School does not discriminate on the basis of race, religious creed, color, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, age, marital status or disability.  This policy applies to, but is not limited to, admission, financial aid, and employment.
